PJ Harvey & John Parish @ El Rey Theatre, Los Angeles 3/23/09

Some 12 years after Dance Hall At Louse Point, Polly and Parish will release their jointly billed A Woman Walked By LP, next Tuesday (3/30) via Island Records. It’s gotten off to a good start. Last night the pair hit L.A.’s El Rey Theatre in celebration, the first of only two shows they’ve scheduled for now (the second is at the Filmore at Irving Plaza in NYC on Thursday 3/26). HOWEVER it’s worth noting our photographer Andrew Youssef, who filed these photos, reports that Polly teased the crowd with a “See you in June” send-off. Here’s last night’s setlist, if you need to get more excited. For now, try this two-part Q&A with Polly and John as they discuss the record. Some song snippets in there, too. They are cool.

Part 2…

And for some bonus, here’s PJ and JH doing “Black Hearted Love” at SXSW:
